    So, for those who have already placed their accessory orders for their Evos, what did you get?

    I got a Sapphire Blue Seidio Innocase II surface for my Evo.

    Seidio - Your Single Source for Premium Smartphone Accessories

    Accompanied by a Phantom Skinz clear Screen Protector

    Phantom Skinz - Clear and Matte-Finish Protection Film for HTC Evo 4G

    The last things i'll pick up (on launch day) will be a 2nd battery, and charging cradle for the phone + 2nd battery (if available anywhere (BB/RS/Sprint ETC ETC)).... if they're not available in town, i'll order online that same day.

    I'll also be looking out for an HDMI cradle as well.

    Evo, here I come. You are the most invested phone i've ever purchased for. :D

    San Antonio, TX
    Hot pink silicon case from www.amzer.com
    Ghost Armor, full body from www.Ghost-armor.com
    16Gb micro SD card
    Retractable micro USB cable
    USB cigarette lighter adapter

    Also ordered an HD2 silicon case for 0.02 from amazon (even though I know it won't be a perfect fit) because the amzer case isn't shipping until sometime in June :/

    I will like to hear reviews of these things as you folks get them. I am not eager to put a case on an already large phone but I have seen some very well designed iPhone cases that barely add any bulk while adding a good bit of protection. If I can find something like that and people here give it good reviews, I might be persuaded.

    I didnt get a damn thing yet. Most of what I want wont be shipping till after the EVO comes out. I might just go with the accessories with either BB or Sprint. In the meantime I'll order screen protectors from sgp, Ghost Armor or Seido.

    Nothing really. I bought a pocket pouch to carry it in and order a micro hdmi cable that seems to be on back order everywhere. I usually go all out with seidio cases, screen protectors and extended batteries, but I'm just not doing that this time. I'm just going to use the device to its fullest. No frills.

    I'll have to see what The Shack has to offer. I doubt I'll be getting a case or anything, the phone is big enough already. :p

    I've got 2 batteries and a desktop charger on their way, I can't see paying seidio's shipping costs so I am hoping someone will have cases on launch day. If not, I can get an amzer case on amazon with 3.99 overnight shipping.

    Don't know don't have my EVO yet :p I've never tried any Clarivue products before so this will be a first. I've read good reviews and the fact that it's a static screen protector is important for me. Similar to the likes of Boxwave and Steinheil I would assume.

    I'm gonna wait and see what BB will have, hopefully the day of, because I called them the other day, and was put on hold for THIRTY (30) minutes, I left my apartment, and actually drove to the store on hold still, so I could show them, I made it a point that they needed to realize they sucked, and they gave me 10% off whatever I buy the day I get the phone haha

    It probably won't be much but if I get a handful of accessories it's whatever...

    Yeah thats what I'm going for...static screen protector. I hear Steinheil is awesome. I keep looking up their website but they still dont have the sp for the EVO yet.

    Oh cool, someone else from San Antonio. I would love to pick one up here, but unfortunately (or fortunately, depending how you look at it) I will be getting mine in Saratoga Springs, NY.

    As for Accessories:
    Extra cables/chargers: micro USB, HDMI (type D), car & home charger, and of course a separate spare battery charger.
    HD2 leather case, just in case I can't find one good one day of launch (I'm sure I will) at least I have something to protect it
    2 spare batteries
    Clarivue - Ultra Clear screen protectors until something better comes out
    16GB micro sd

    Other than maybe the dock and of course a better case, I am pretty much good to go. :D

    I have a question about the Seidio case. Looking at the picture on the website, it seems that the case covers the front speaker. Anyone know if that is just because the picture is a simple mock-up or if it will actually be like that?

    The case I have on my 8900 doesn't, so I assume that it won't for the EVO.

    Case- Seidio Innocase II Surface in Black (pre-ordered today)
    Screen Protector- Clarivue Privacy Screen Protector
    SD Card- Using my Kingston 8GB Class 4 from my 8900 (after a format)
    Earbuds- Using my stock Blackberry earbuds (x2 if they work, which I can't see why they shouldn't...they are 3.5mm)
    Battery- Keeping OEM
    Charger- Already have micro USB chargers laying around
    Car Dock- Waiting for Seidio's...unless Sprint will have one in stock on the 4th
    HDMI Cable- Will wait awhile before I get one

    <-- Also in San Antonio.

    -2 Car Chargers, got them for $1.50 each off Ebay and have them in hand already
    -Phantom Skinz Clear - Screen Only

    I still have yet to decide on a case, the Seidio Innocase's seem pretty nice... But seem like quite an expense for a case.

    I was going to order a 16g Class 6 from newegg but decided to hold off an see if I ever even get close to filling up the 8g. Currently have an 8g in my Instinct and filled it with music and either use Pandora or listen to my XM.

    I want to find a pouch for my EVO... I don't know where I can find one. I've tried to find one for my iPhone a while ago and couldn't find one and gave up. It's a pouch I'd keep in my pocket, similar to the covers that come with iPod classics (or used to, I don't know)
